how there's assassination attempt on colonel gaddafi, u.s. officials at the pentagon have already said they're not targeting gaddafi. that doesn't rule out that a strike took place, but i think there's some skepticism about any claims made pie this government. they're clearly operating a propaganda war as well as a war on the ground and they've been dead wrong on major statements in the past and i think there's a question mark whether this was in fact an attempt and whether that attempt happened recently, from the damage shown, it was an administration building, there's no report of casualties. gaddafi's compound itself is a huge, four block complex, it's like four city blocks surrounded by a 12 foot high wall. it's a big operation there and the administrative building is in ruins, but when it was hit, when it was destroyed, really, a question mark at this point, despite the government's claims. >> harris: yeah, very excellent points about that. pushing forward with propaganda, we should mention gaddafi has been in power there for four decades, the guy knows how to spin it. we'll see w

he won't have that. >> in a statement to reporters he said u.s. forces won't land in libya and sources tell fox news, attack planes will not be used in the no-fly zone. operation requires american leadership but not that we act alone. >> this is precisely how the international community should work as more nations bear responsibility and the costs of enforcing international law. >> reporter: that should mean a smaller chair of costs that could range from a few million to a hundred million a week. there are reports his advisors were deeply divided over the prospect of military action but he has resisted gig up. he didn't want the u.s. to be the issue in another arab conflict. there were quiet rumbles from 18 men's of congress he briefed but statement to reporters later was aimed at winning over skeptical americans. >> here is why this matter -- left uncheck that khadafy would commit atrocities against his people, many thousands could die. humanitarian crisis would ensue. >> reporter: in language that recalled his predecessor, he also said the word of the international commun
